How To Instantly Size Up Strangers Like Sherlock Holmes Reviews
As a result of the resurgence in Sherlock's popularity, there are a growing number of books that are making their attempt to teach Sherlock's Method or the way that he thinks. I myself have bought Mastermind, How to think like Sherlock, The Deduction Guide, Taz Rai's The Art of Deduction (not the art of deduction book here on amazon), The Elementary Methods of Sherlock Holmes, Snoop, The Secret Life of Pronouns, I've watched Sherlock, Elementary, House MD, Criminal Minds, and read Conan Doyle's, stories, scoured blogs and the internet for more pertinent information, read extensive information on various subjects and have come to a conclusion.In order to sort the relevant from the irrelevant, the good from the bad, you would have to write your own book on the subject. in fact i plan to, in a different area, because i wouldn't want to be counter productive, but this book is very similar to the one i would've written, at least the first one.The author uses examples from the canon for the reader to observe Holmes using particular parts of his method, and then teaching you how to apply it in the real modern day world, and suggests a wealth of practical exercises designed to improve your natural abilities to do the same. these are not brain teasers, or anything like it. there are specific observation training exercises, listening exercises etc. if you've read any of the above books mentioned chances are that this is what you've been looking for, i know, i was.It's concise, and to the point, and doesn't bite off more than it can chew. and as an added bonus, the author challenges the reader to discover a secret that he has embedded in the book, in true mystery story spirit! the secret, while not a major revelation of any sort, as he says "you already know it", can provide a motivation in the student that could be absent had he/she not endeavored.If you're a fan of Sherlock Holmes and have ever wanted to buy a book that could help you do what Sherlock does, this is without a doubt, one that get's a very high recommendation.
As a HUGE longtime fan of Sherlock Holmes I can truthfully say I loved the book HOW TO INSTANTLY SIZE UP STRANGERS LIKE SHERLOCK HOLMES BY MAR A WILLIAMS SR. The author took apart piece by piece the "methods" Mr Holmes used to find out the bad guys. What amused me was they arent rocket science folks! Just simple observation and listening skills. In the book he referenced Holmes books when trying to make a point or example. At the last section of the book he challenges you to test your new found knowledge. Reading the book made me want to drag my Sherlock Holmes books to reread and test my new skills!I received the book from goodreads in exchange for a review
More like 2.5 stars. If you are a Sherlock Holmes aficionado, you'd really enjoy this book and all of the direct references.As far as giving me actual guidance as to how to size up strangers, I felt the details were lacking. This provided a lot of hope that it can be done. The exercises at the back would be helpful for someone truly interested in developing their detective senses. However, so many interpretations can be made from items that it would be hard to pinpoint specifics about a person without years of research and practice.* I received a free copy of this book from a Goodreads giveaway *
This book was pretty good. If you want to be able to detect lies and size people up, I recommend it. The only thing is, for every fact it gives four or five examples, which gets boring since there is a fact on every page.
